Variables don’t do things, people do.

John Goldthorpe, On Sociology, 2006

Modern social sciences have a very paradoxical flaw. Social sciences are supposed to be about people and why they do what they do. But read a modern education, sociology, or psychology journal and not a single person is in sight. Instead abstract theoretical concepts predict other abstract theoretical concepts. In short people have disappeared from the people sciences. The aim of this blog is to provide people first social science.
